CUMMINGS is hand turned wood bottle stopper made from cherry burl with a birdseye maple finial.
Burls are knotty growths on trees where the wood has grown in a deformed manner. This particular burl came from a cherry tree in Bourbon County, Kentucky. All grain changes and cracks are natural and enhance the wood’s beauty.
The stopper portion is stainless steel and has a silicone rubber seal. The total length is 5-1/4″ and the maximum width is 1-1/2″. I finished the wood with high friction polish to enhance its natural color.
Like all of our stoppers, this hand turned wood bottle stopper comes in a handmade fabric bag sewn by Lori.

A little about me….
I’m a historical archaeologist and spend my days excavating sites, analyzing artifacts, and writing up my findings. When I’m not in the field, you’ll find me in my woodshop. I primarily use found and reclaimed wood from here in Central Kentucky. It’s my hope that incorporating elements of the wood as I found it into each piece serves as a reminder that the object you see once was part of a beautiful, living tree.
